My take... Ever meet that guy who just knows it all? Has an opinion about everything and everyone else but not enough life under their belt to understand the hows and whys of the way things work? I got my first bike (in a verrry long time) in late 2016. I wouldn’t dream of coming on this forum to comment on how other people ride the way he did. And most certainly not in my first couple posts with endless run on sentences and no formatting. Shit, even now I may comment on stupid drivers, but the only ‘real comment’ I’ll make about other riders is I believe not wearing a helmet is selfish — as someone else may have to deal with you as a vegetable for decades to come. People are going to do what they’re going to do. Sometimes for valid reasons, sometimes for no reason, sometimes because they’re just plain stupid. (And I’ve done my own share of stupid in life as well). Shouting from the mountaintops has long been out of style. I got a friend who works in management for a large contracting company. One of his freshly-minted journeymen went to HR and complained my friend was being ‘condescending’ to him. Basically this guy thought because he was now a 4 year trained journeyman he knew more than a guy who worked his way up the ranks and was nearing retirement, so he didn’t want to hear anything about anything from my friend. Then he proceeded to fuck up a job to the tune of ~$12k. So now the company is gonna eat that $12k, and this ‘journeyman’ not only has to re-do the job but also sets the project back a couple weeks. With the HR complaint, it’s near impossible for my friend to shit-can the guy now even though it’s a costly mistake by a know-it-all. But...when the economy turns down, I bet you can guess who my friend lays off first. One of my own kids is entering the trades. I had to teach him the words ‘I know’ don’t exist in his vocabulary because some journeyman is gonna year him say that and bust his balls for a long time as a result. That guy read the whole thread, and good for him. I read the whole thing too. It’s a good thread. His attitude didn’t contribute anything to it. He was like that newly minted journeyman. Me? I got a few years under my belt, a few things to add, a few options as well. But I’m still a fucking noob in the great scheme of things. And I guarantee I’ve read more books and watched more videos on riding than the vast majority of riders out there. It’s good to be a little humble. It can keep you out of trouble.
